I thought we were all red or green dots, shock. Who has a person?

Everyone has a red or green dot. If you're still seeing people, it's the same caching issue I described in the other thread.

I think that's the case - all my buddies are human and the non-buddies are dots :P

Evolution is cruel :P

Hmmmmm. That's possible. I don't use the Buddy stuff, so if those have a different display, I wouldn't know.

I'll try to check it out over the weekend.

I think that's it. I just added someone as my buddy and their dot changed into a person.

Wow, this is good to know. I actually have never done the "buddy" thing. Perhaps I should. It looks like a nice feature.

I think it is great the way it is, m2. I can't speak for the others but it sounds like they like it too!

I don't even know what the point is of the Buddy thing. :)

Your buddies names show up in bold letters on the home page in "users online".

Starfish, the problem is I have so many great buddies here, they would all show up in bold letters on the home page ;D!!!
